PLYMOUTH A Plymouth pastor has been called to take over a Fort Wayne parish after a priest was caught in a child abuse scandal.

The Plymouth Pilot reports that Father William Kummer will replace Reverend Cornelius Ryan, who was removed from his position at Saint Joseph Catholic Church earlier this month.

Ryan admitted to allegations of child abuse, after being confronted. The allegations reportedly involve an incident in Africa about 20 years ago.

Kummer will take over for Ryan on July 16th.
